I recently discovered an artist by the name of Earl Bronsteen, a 79 year conceptual artist from Boca Roton, FL. Before youwall_of_rejection read on, grab a glass of wine and get comfortable, Earl has developed a video tour of his 8000 square foot studio that I am sure you will find interesting. If you don’t have the time to view all 38 episodes, do take the time to view “rejection letters”, this is the epitome of the “glass half empty or half full”.

Ronald S. Magliozzi, Assistant Curator, and Jenny He, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art, discuss the exhibition and the work of Batiste Madalena.
